The Ornithologist

Friday, June 23 - Tuesday, July 25, 2017

João Pedro Rodrigues’s (To Die Like a Man) genre-bending, carnal, borderline blasphemous update on the story of Anthony de Padua reimagines the patron saint of lost things as a hunky birdwatcher (Paul Hamy). When a boating accident knocks him unconscious, our hero washes up at the feet of two seemingly innocent Chinese pilgrims. But instead of finding safety, he discovers his trials have just begun.
